RLV - TD - Go India Go !!


This Monday 23 May, 2016 at 9.30 am, the scaled down version (technology demonstrator) of India's mini space shuttle (Reusable Launch Vehicle) will make its first experimental flight from Sriharikotta. Keeping fingers crossed !

After the failed and retired  US' Space Shuttle Mission (after 135 flights) and the failed Elon Musk's Space X' Falcon rocket, will India have to offer technological cost based leadership to handhold and guide global space research yet again ? 🙏🏻

While a grim-eyed US watches with bated breath at India's attempt to offer technological leadership, the global economic super power China is dumbfounded, lost yet again ! (that partly explains it's military buildup near Indian borders in a show-off to flex muscles)

A big thumbs-up and good wishes to all my ISRO friends !! You can !!
